I’m only a man 

I’m only a man 

Singing Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay

I couldn’t possibly know all but I can damn well try  

To know who is that man in the coffin 

He had so many wives 

I can’t even count em

I mean I know there was Lucy and Margaret and Elsie 

And about 20 Mary’s and 10 more Joan’s but who is the man in the coffin

Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay

He died or was killed nobody knows

Suicide or murder no one could guess 

With wives a mourning and burials due 

The police need an answer before their times through 

Another man dead another man dying 

The soul of this man won’t get very far 

He was old and lecherous    

Abusive and cruel 

He deserved what was coming 

And when it came he knew 

Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay 

And now his wives they’re alone in this world 

No one supports them 

Or buys them new pearls 

They’re looking for an answer 

Who killed their man?

And why did they do it so soon?

Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay 

Since this death and the perils of mourning 

I’ve done some research and thinking too

I’ve discovered the man who a killed him 

And by Jove you knew it too

To even utter that he killed himself

Would be sheer madness I know

But look at Elsie poor little Elsie 

Rolling in his money too soon too soon

Elsie was married before this old man 

To a criminal named Jefferey a cruel hearted man 

He killed three men just for excitement 

And it seemed Elsie knew what to do

Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay

So to conclude this rambling mess of words

A man was murdered just by an old bird

She was bitter and twisted 

And so was he 

So why should we care when she’s hung 

Oh I do no see who is to blame 

They’re both as bad as each other

So why should she hang?

why should he be dead?

It really doesn’t matter 

Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay 

Ay dee dee Ay dee dee Ay
